Pizza is coming to Cutlery WorksPosted by: Ashley Birch
Base Pizza Co. opens today and here’s how you can get half price pizza
Cutlery Works welcomes a new trader today (14 August), as Base Pizza Co. grab a slice of the action in Sheffield’s first food hall.
The new pizza purveyors are bringing traditional Neapolitan pizza to the food hall, along with focaccia slabs and toppings, a selection of Italian sides and Menabrea beer buckets. For those with a sweet tooth, they will also offer their ‘secret recipe’ tiramisu and cannoli.
And if that’s not enough to go at, as a weekend treat, they’re bringing you ‘The Full Italian’, which is their take on a Full English Breakfast and features Napoli fennel sausage, tomato pesto, mushrooms, pancetta, spinach and egg on top of toasted focaccia, and is described by Base’s co-owner Gian Bohan as ‘a monster’.
Gian has over 24 years’ experience in the Sheffield restaurant scene and has set up Base Pizza Co. with Joe Hewett-Hobson, his business partner in the plant-based health food business Shed, which recently moved out of Cutlery Works to focus on other ventures (keep your eyes peeled for more on that tomorrow).
Base will also be headed up by one of Gian’s friends. He told VIBE: “One of my oldest friends, Pasquale Polli, is from Naples, we’ve been on many reccy’s out to Naples, sampling the food, so when we talked about doing pizza in Cutlery Works he was the person we turned to, to head it up.
“Obviously my background is in Italian food with Nonna’s, and we saw the need for good pizza in Cutlery Works. We’ve got a great space up there and it was an obvious move.

“We’re going to produce some amazing pizza, valuing the tradition of good pizza, with a nod to the modern. Bringing the old and the new together and having a bit of fun.”
Pizzas range from £5.50 - £6.50 and to celebrate their opening they are offering visitors who buy a beer, half price pizza all day today and tomorrow (14 and 15 August).
